April Fools’ Day never fails to wreak havoc all over the media, making it nearly impossible to discern the real news from the “alternative facts” (not that this is unheard of for 2017). However, this year the devious pranksters of the internet took their high jinks to a whole new level.
These are by far some of the most ingenious tricks we’ve seen so far and we can only hope no real-life heart attacks were induced yesterday.
1. Netflix Live
This “teaser” was posted on Twitter Friday and features the hilarious Will Arnett just narrating several vague words. It may not be real, but I’d probably still watch it.
2. The Google Gnome
From the creators of the Google Home, comes an all-new outdoor assistant; the Google Gnome. If only this was real. However, the Gnome wasn’t the only ingenious prank Google pulled on the internet this year. Check out their full list of April Fools shenanigans here.
3. These “All Stuff” Oreos with just the creme
Let’s be real, we would all eat these if they existed. This creative prank packaging was engineered by meme wizard Adam Padilla.
4. Mars life insurance from Progressive
The popular insurance company Progressive fooled the internet yesterday with their campaign offering life insurance on planet Mars. Yes, really.
